Lizard in the sun
This is a splendid shot from you of what seems to be a Podarcis muralis - the Common Wall Lizard.
I really like the composition of your shot and the way you managed to keep all of it in the frame (and not cut the tails off as i've seen on many other photos).
The details and skin textures are great and the exposure is well managed, despite the rather bright wall.
Bravo and TFS

A very good capture of this lizard!
I enjoyed a lot thestory told in your notes...I couldn't shot a lizard yet, they move so fast and are very shy, so great for you and this post.
Details got on the skin are very good and have and amazing pattern.
Congratulations and thanks for share.
My best regards,

I see you have spent a very good time at your grandparents. Original shot and workshop prove correctness of my words excellently. Lizard shot is perfect composed. I like its pleasant colour palette and excellent details of the animal and BG. You have written note simple perfect. My best wishes and TFS. Well done.

I will think they appreciate the sun too, at least as much as we do!
This fellow is well framed, and captured with lovely details...
A well composed presentation with attractive colours!

Valerie, I'm going back to this picture you posted in April because I missed it for some reason.
My attention was drawn by the shape of this lizard in the thumbnail view. Now I notice that it is not only quite big but has also very attractive patterns on its brown body.
The shot is well taken against the background of a reddish rock.
Obviously, when you must have swung around to capture those running deer, you must have used the same camera settings as were determined to shoot the lizard. Still, the results are not bad because the graceful movements of these animals are well recorded, even though a bit blurry (which happens when things are in fast motion and you have not been able to choose the right camera settings).
Well done and regards.

Hi Valerie, a very nice shot of this lizard. I have a couple of shots of one in Australia that are very similar to it. Someday I'll have to post them. Like you I am still struggling a bit with the identification. This guy stands out very well against that wall, even though it is almost a similar colour. You've captured good detail, even right down to his eye and toes (which I understand help in the identification). Appreciated your workshop.
